The masterminds behind the mass killing at St. Philips Catholic church in Ozubuli, Ekwusigo Local government has been revealed.
This was revealed by the Anambra state Commissioner of Police Garba Umar during a press briefing in Amawbia last Wednesday.
Mr Umar said the masterminds of the massacre whom he identified as Prince Charlse Obi a.k.a Gozila and Dickson Nwodi a.k.a Afam are in a South African prison.
“Two indigenes of Anambra State from Nnobi and Oba LGAs respectively, currently serving prison terms in South Africa for murder, have taken responsibility for the attack.
“They vowed that there will be more attacks if their financial demands, which were not disclosed, made of certain persons are not met.
“They mandated one Quintus Anayo (alias Obasanjo) based in South Africa to come to Ozubulu and inform the elders of the town of this threat.
“The two prisoners in South Africa are Prince Charles Obi (a.k.a. Gozila) and Dickson Nwodi (a.k.a. Afam).
“The command wishes to state categorically that we will ensure that all identified perpetrators are brought to book. On that strength, three of the suspects in custody are to be arraigned within this week on charges of conspiracy and murder with other suspects at large.
“The Interpol is already involved in the investigation and possible extradition of the suspects based in South Africa who claimed responsibility for the attack on the church.”
